The first story, "CAL" by Lisa Gail Green kept me hoping that things would work out for the main characters. Filled with tension and dread, I kept hoping our deepest fears would be proven wrong...
"The Terrible, Perfect Duet" by Trista A. Bissett tells a coming of age story, with a twist. At times, I found myself wondering, "What is she turning into?"
"Helios" by Leslie S. Rose was a story that screamed tragedy from the very beginning. Throughout the story, I wondered what would be their downfall. Would the father she never knew cast her aside? Would her mate lead her astray? Would they, like Icarus, reach for the heavens and fall to the earth? As I read on, I had the sneaking suspicion the couple would never make it off the planet with the rest of the evacuees. I'll let you read it to find out what really happened.
"Encrypted" by Ian Kezsbom had me trying to put the clues together like a mystery. I'm known for figuring out the whodunits before everyone else (including Sherlock Holmes), so saying I saw the ending a mile away doesn't mean it was obvious. Still, I loved trying to piece the reality that Kezsbom paints together to figure out what's really going on. Think deeper and maybe you'll figure it out too.
"Lighting the Sacred Way" by S. P. Sipal was a cool story and different from the rest, at least in my opinion. I can honestly say I didn't see the ending coming. It was a good ending. I liked the ending. It balanced out all the other endings.
The stories in brief:
Cal is a classic science fiction story that posits the unexpected consequences of technology
The Terrible, Perfect Duet - great and chilling story (even if we can all guess the conclusion - still a fun ride to get there)
Helios - Even in the far future, people are people (unfortunately).
Encrypted - Another classic science fiction story - would make a great twilight zone episode!
Lighting the Sacred Way - As in volume 1, it closes with a longer, more unusual story. Found it fascinating - if a bit unusual. Can't wait to see what they come up with to anchor volume 3!
The first two stories are probably my favorites. The first, dramatic and engrossing, the second was suspenseful with a great feeling of impending doom and an ending I did not see coming at all.
Once again I enjoyed all of the stories, though the last story was probably once again my least favorite.
Still, a great collection and well worth a read.

I love short stories and most of these were worth reading. I found them ultimately a little lacking in conclusions, but I still enjoyed reading them. Read morePublished on February 28, 2013 by Stephen P. Suelzle
